A modern Saint-Chinian that is full of flavor
There is no denying that the 2015 Cave Roquebrun, La Grange Des Combes, Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun provides ample volumes of flavorful black fruit and minerals. Though there is some bitterness it is generally a ripe, powdery, dense wine. It is a not my style of wine but I imagine it is a crowd-pleaser. Priced at $13 per bottle you can supply that crowd. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.
2015 Cave Roquebrun, La Grange Des Combes, Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun – $13
Imported by Monsieur Touton. This wine is a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre raised in stainless steel. There are ample flavors of ripe, powdery, black fruit and minerals with an almost bitter, black fruited start. The wine is grapey in a way with some black pepper and ripe texture from the long-grained tannins. With air plenty of good, ripe and grapey black fruit flavor remains. In the end this is a dense, modern style of wine. ** Now – 2020.
